Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey said he hasn't ruled out re-signing free agent Knowshon Moreno.
Moreno tore his ACL in Week 6 and is still rehabbing. Prior to getting hurt, Moreno rushed 31 times for 148 yards (4.8 YPC) and one TD across three games. The Dolphins want a power complement to Lamar Miller, preferably one who can pass protect. Moreno is one of the best in that area. Mar 25 - 9:44 AM

ESPN's James Walker doesn't expect Miami to bring back free agent Knowshon Moreno.

Coming off his injury-filled 2014, the Dolphins plan to move on from Moreno. He settled for a one-year deal last offseason and will likely struggle to find guaranteed offers. Moreno is four months removed from ACL surgery.

Feb 4 - 7:49 PM

Dolphins placed RB Knowshon Moreno (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Moreno sustained an ACL tear during Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers, although we didn't see it and the Dolphins made no mention of it. His first season in Miami ends with 31 carries for 148 yards and one touchdown, badly hampered by an offseason knee scope and a Week 2 elbow injury. Moreno will enter free agency again this offseason, this time at 27 years old with even more injury concerns than last year when he settled for a one-year, $3M deal from the Dolphins. He'll find scant interest. Lamar Miller, who has been playing at a very high level over the last month, is locked and loaded as Miami's feature back the rest of the way.
Tue, Oct 14, 2014 08:43:00 AM

Knowshon Moreno rushed six times for 10 yards and caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers.

Back from his elbow injury, Moreno rotated series-by-series with Lamar Miller in the first half. However, he got stuffed on three straight goal-line chances and looked a bit sluggish compared to the quick Miller. In the second half, Moreno barely played as Miller starred. There's going to be some week-to-week competition for carries in this RBBC, but Moreno is second in line heading to a Week 7 game at Chicago.

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is active for Week 6 against the Packers.

The Miami Herald estimates Moreno will be ticketed for approximately 8-10 carries in his first game since Week 2. Moreno has had trouble adjusting to the bulky brace he's being forced to wear on his elbow. Lamar Miller will start, but Moreno could surpass 8-10 totes if he looks good early.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 11:32:00 AM

Knowshon Moreno is scheduled for approximately 8-10 carries against the Packers in his return from a dislocated elbow.

Moreno practiced on only a limited basis all week, as he's had some difficulty trying to get used to the bulky brace supporting his elbow. The 8-10 carries expectation signals the Dolphins will use an even timeshare between Moreno and Lamar Miller, with Moreno's role likely growing should be prove he can play effectively with the brace. Consider Moreno a high-risk FLEX option.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 09:54:00 AM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) is listed as probable for Week 6 versus Green Bay.

It's somewhat notable that Moreno was "limited" in Friday's practice. As recently as Thursday, Moreno was having problems trying to practice with a bulky brace on his previously dislocated elbow. It's impossible to say at this point whether Moreno will get a lead back's workload against the Packers, or if he'll share carries evenly with Lamar Miller, or if he'll only be a bit player off the bench. He's a high-risk flex option in Week 6.
Fri, Oct 10, 2014 03:50:00 PM

Speaking Thursday, Knowshon Moreno (elbow) hinted his Week 6 status remains up in the air.

He was officially "limited" in Thursday's practice. Speaking with ESPN's James Walker, Moreno intimated that his availability could come down to his comfort with wearing an elbow brace. Asked what the issues with the brace were, Moreno responded "everything." It's possible Moreno's status could come down to a game-time decision. The situation will be updated no later than Friday.

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He's on the field with a brace protecting his dislocated elbow. Signs continue to point to Moreno suiting up this week in a plus matchup against the Packers. It's still to be determined how carries will be split between Moreno and Lamar Miller. But based on the way the Dolphins used Miller in Moreno's absence, it suggests they view him merely as a change-of-pace back with Moreno as the lead dog.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 12:32:00 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero believes Knowshon Moreno (elbow) was "being quirky" when he suggested last week he was four weeks away from returning.

"That was always worst case," wrote Salguero. Salguero believes the Dolphins' decision to waive backup RB Orleans Darkwa on Monday indicates they "obviously feel confident" Moreno will be available for Week 6 against the Packers. Moreno should have been stashed to this point, but he's now a must-add wherever he was let go. When healthy, the Dolphins have shown more fondness for Moreno as a feature runner, utilizing Lamar Miller as a change-of-pace back. Miami also suddenly has put together one of the better offensive lines in the league. C/RG Mike Pouncey will return from his hip injury this week.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 05:27:00 PM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) practiced in Monday's informal session, and "hopes" to return for Sunday's game against the Packers.

This, after Moreno said last week that he would "probably" be sidelined four more weeks. According to reporter Armando Salguero, "no final determination" has been made on Moreno's Week 6 status. It's extremely hard to believe he'd be ready to play after last week's statement, but it's obviously a situation to monitor. We'll get our first real clue as to Moreno's status when the Dolphins issue their first official injury report on Wednesday.
Mon, Oct 6, 2014 02:24:00 PM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) said he's four weeks away from returning.

"I probably got like four more weeks," Moreno said. "About four more weeks and I’ll be good." The Dolphins were hoping to have Moreno back in Week 6 when they come out of their bye. He's now targeting Week 8 against Jacksonville for his return. Lamar Miller will continue to be Miami's lead back for at least the next three games, with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams backing him up.
Wed, Oct 1, 2014 01:19:00 PM

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins believe Knowshon Moreno's (elbow) return "isn't too far off."

Moreno is still targeting Week 6, which would be less than a month after he dislocated his elbow. Moreno was given a 4-8 timetable upon going down. The Dolphins take on the Raiders in London this week before going on bye. Moreno remains a must-hold in 12-14 team leagues.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 07:46:00 PM

Dolphins declared RB Knowshon Moreno, C Mike Pouncey, LB Jordan Tripp, OL Shelley Smith, OL Billy Turner, DE Terrence Fede, and LB Koa Misi inactive for Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Lamar Miller gets the start at tailback, with Damien Williams expected to back him up. Misi was expected to play in this game, so his inactivity was a surprise. Misi's absence is good news for Knile Davis' matchup.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 02:58:00 PM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) has told teammates that he plans to be back in the lineup Week 6.

Moreno was originally given a 4-8 week timetable for recovery after dislocating his elbow last week against the Bills. A Week 6 return would be right at four weeks, and comes directly after the Dolphins' Week 5 bye. Players are always more optimistic about their own injuries, so we're not going to hold Moreno to this. Owners need to continue to stash Moreno. Lamar Miller will handle lead-back duties in his absence. Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa are Nos. 2 and 3.
